Management of innovation is not perfunctory due to the perils and consequences attached at every stage of innovation creation. In organizational contexts. one way to insure the successful development of innovations is through effective design of robust support systems. This conception is extensively discussed and consolidated in this paper by identifying bound management, project review/product management, knowledge management, and reward as major support systems for managing innovation and knowledge. Evidences have been drawn from in-depth case studies of three firms. which are industrial R&D organizations operating in industries such as Pharmaceuticals, Steel, and Power Equipment industry. . In specifics, this paper elaborates :one, how the design of organizational structure fosters boundary management and which results in product innovation, new market development, and the evolution of a new culture; two, how the project review system and product management system enhances effective product development, thereby enhancing the quality of the products through customer involvement; three, how efficient systems in managing knowledge augmented innovative outcomes and resulted in behavioral learning of the members, and finally, some pitfalls of reward systems in the public-sector organizations, and consequently, how through certain coping mechanisms employees are motivated. It concludes by providing some recommendations for designing powerful support systems to achieve efficient creation of innovations and management of knowledge.
